AMBER Amber is perhaps the oldest substance used for human adornment. Its projective forces bring luck, healing, strength, beauty and love. It is not a stone but fossilized resin of coniferous trees of the Oligocene epoch. Beads and pendants have been found in grave sites dating back to 8000 B.C.E. It was once a living substance (sap that sustained a trees life) it was believed to contain the very essence of life itself. Amber has been utilized for nearly every purpose in magic. Wiccas and Shaman always wear amber necklaces combined with Jet. Those born in November will be drawn to its topaz like colour. See also: fossils and jet
